Meneleo Carlos Jr. dies at 95

Meneleo J. Carlos Jr., businessman and industrialist known for his stewardship of the pioneering Philippine chemical conglomerate Resins Inc. as well as his active involvement in various national business organizations, died peacefully Friday night, May 17, at the age of 95.

Mr. Carlos, who held top positions and key roles in the Federation of Philippine Industries, Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and Bishops-Businessmen’s Conference for Human Development, among others, was an officer of Resins since its incorporation in 1955.


He took over as company president in 1980 following the retirement of his father, Resins founder Meneleo Carlos Sr., and led the expansion of its range of businesses. 

Mr. Carlos represented the business sector in government-led multisectoral bodies such as the negotiating panel for the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant, Council of Advisers of Energy Affairs, and Committee on Power Conservation and Demand Management (Power Patrol).

He was recognized as the Grandfather of “RO-RO,” the roll on/ roll off project that facilitates seamless movement of people and goods from Mindanao to Luzon through Visayas.

An advocate of the wood industry and trees as a solution to climate change, he was bestowed in 2015 the coveted MOLAWIN (Most Outstanding Leadership Award in the Wood Industry) by the Philippine Wood Producers Association. 

Mr. Carlos has stated that his dream has always been to help the development of the country and its people.

His wake will be at the Queen of Angels Chapel, Riverbanks Center, Barangka, Marikina City, 2pm to 10pm from Sunday, May 19 to Tuesday, May 21.  Interment is scheduled for Wednesday morning, May 22.
